Production is now underway on the upcoming TV adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis’ acclaimed comic Powers for Sony Pictures, and USA Today has posted a first look photo from the series.
The story follows two detectives, Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward), assigned to investigate superpower-related major crimes. The series is set to launch on the PlayStation Network in December. Executive producer Charlie Huston sees this as an advantage because the show will have network production values but without the content restrictions usually associated with network television:
“My dream was for the show and the books to almost run in parallel universes as they explore the same themes. We’re getting the best of both worlds. We’re getting a network-budgeted show, and we’re getting to dive in as dark and deep as we want to go.”
